taking pictures for the CAHumane calendar with Kimberly from
Chic & Grace Studios! Just look at me, her pictures are sooo beautiful!
But that’s not even the best part, by entering me in the
Calendar Photo Contest & voting, I helped raised money for shelter
animals who aren’t as lucky as me to have a loving home, but I know
they will get one soon with your help!

Your pet could be this year’s calendar cover star but first you have to
enter your furry family member into the contest for only $5 & vote, vote, vote!

They could earn one of 12 spots (6 voted, 6 selected by judges) in the
CAHumane 2020 Calendar! It is such a fun way to donate to animals in
care. Not only that but my mom won awesome prizes too & got to take
home gorgeous professional photos of me!
